Beautiful Baby Boy...Soren...

Today is a special day. Nine years ago my friend Karin at The Sum Of Mum gave birth to her beautiful son Soren. Devastatingly. Soren developed a massive E.coli infection and two days later he died.

Karin and her husband have had a heartbreaking struggle to raise a family here on earth. Karin writes so honestly and poignantly about all of their their children, both those who died too soon as well as their beautiful son Magnus who was born on 1st December, 2004 and came home for them to raise.

Please visit her blog and say hello.

Happy Birthday Soren...9 years old...where has the time gone..?? Both a blink and an eternity all at once. (((((Karin))))) and your family have been at the fore of my thoughts all day. I hope Soren's birthday has been gentle for you.

With so much love...and so many (((((((hugs)))))))

I left her a comment. I simply cannot imagine losing a child. Cannot.

My older sister died when I was 15 and she was 18. Although she goes through the motions, I doubt my Mom will ever get over the loss. I know I never will.

I'm so happy that she's been able to shower love on the Bubster as well as celebrate Soren. She's lucky to have you as a dear friend.

A very bittersweet post. A lovely tribute to a precious little boy.
